Ideal Motel for weary travellers.”
The staff members was very helpful on check in even providing a small breakfast basket which was ideal as I had a early start to get on the road.They're is plenty of signage to locate the motel from the main road and the nearby Railway Crossing with its regular freight Trains is not noticeable as all the rooms have excellent sound proofing. It even a great location if you are a bit of a train enthusiasts. Highly recommended accommodation option to stay whilst visiting or passing through Port Augusta
Great Accommodation ”
Good location, very friendly staff, room was perfect .Very secure parking which I love as I go out bush and have expensive gear up on the roof rack.Not far from a great pub for meals shopping centre just down the road. The only negative was that it's right next to a train line but the last train for the day goes through fairly early in the night around 9.30 ish I think it was so no big deal. If in Port Augusta again this will be the only place I consider.
Pampas Motel was a lovely spot to stay overnight and it was worth paying a little extra to upgrade. The host was helpful and very pleasant. Being a light sleeper, the trains were not so much of an issue as I knew what to expect. The people in the room next door came in late and made a lot of noise talking loudly and had the TV on until well after 1am. Not good for having a good sleep after a long day driving. I would recommend this accommodation to others.
Hidden Gem, Better than any Motel”
This not really a Motel, its way better. A hidden gem, was a pub in the late 1800s, now restored to era decor and is a boutique hotel. Nothing else like it in Pt Augusta. . Absolutely spotlessly clean, awesome host who is so obliging, and goes way above normal service levels.
Straight-forward and Friendly”
The Pampas is an old style pub, converted into a motel. It is fine for an over-night stay and well located to access the Pichi Richi Steam railway. An easy stroll to a nearby pub for evening meal, few frills but no complaints. The room was spacious.
This motel has its own story, the family owned this motel happily shared the story to us. The public shower and kitchen is clean and convenient. the best thing we love is the basin inside our room, which is very convenient. It is also good location to stop by if you are travelling between Coober Pedy and Adelaide.
Hello Zhi Thank you so much for your review. Your comments are greatly appreciated. Best regards Michelle (owner)
A little bit of history at a budget price”
I stayed with 2 family members overnight on 14th November. We stayed in a motel-like room at the rear of the historic building. I have a cleaning company and I was very impressed at the cleanliness and freshness of our room. Everything you need in a basic but 'got you covered' way. very ample breakfast basket...much enjoyed. Michelle is a great host partnered with Jackson The Dog. If she isn't busy she certainly has a family tale or 2 to tell!!
Hello Margetta Thank you for your great comments, they are greatly appreciated. So glad you enjoyed staying in our small family motel. All the best Michelle (owner) and Jaxon :)
Quirky relaxing place”
Great place to stay. Although some unfinished renovations it's a clean cozy motel. Interesting period features and furniture. Very large rooms and facilities. Secure carpark was a bonus I didn't have to worry about my motorbike being on the street. Would definitely stay again
Perfect motel for a night”
Beautiful hotel that has been functionally preserved. Security is good and parking is secure. Nearby to a good club which offers dinners. Staff were helpful. Shared facilities was less of an issue then I thought. Heard the train but it did not did disturb my sleep like some reviewers.
Excellent stay, will stay here again on our way back”
We stayed in the family room out the back,the facilities are spotlessly clean, room has microwave, coffee making facilities, hairdryer, iron and large TV. Michelle is friendly and very accommodating. For prices on the Nullabor trek the price is quite reasonable and is the cleanest by far.
Brilliant Hospitality make this icon first cladd”
Let's be honest, most people wold rather have brilliant first class hospitality and good facilities over great facilities and poor hospitality. Michelle is the most amazing Host who has your every need thought about and delivered on. I'll admit that the room looked like a blast from 1970, but everything worked and the bed was extremely comfortable. Michelle delivered to our room a sensational breakfast hamper. Value for money, hospitality, cleanliness, basic but good facilities, excellent security, gated carparking and even powerpoints to plug your car fridge into if needed. No wonder Trip Advisor had this place rated so highly. Excellent and Memorable. We will be back.
Hello Stuart Thank you for your great review regarding our small family business. Your comments are much appreciated. Hope to see you again. Best regards Michelle (owner) :)
See previous review, no change, I can only enhance what we said before. Thank you.

Have a clean and spacious room. Reasonable price, just the toilet is at the other side of the corridor. Everything is great.
Awesome place - great value ”
Awesome, awesome room. Showers are shared - but that is only a minor detail. The room is well kept and very comfortable.
thank you Cruz your review is much appreciated :) Regards Michelle (owner)
Pros were close to Pastoral. Good showere and good TV. Beds were awful. Sorry. Totally substandard. Sore back next morning. Close to major trainline Can be noisy. Owners were earm and friendly.
Great spot for a night’s rest”
Large room with good air conditioning and a friendly welcome. Floors could do with a sweep but otherwise kept well.
Really friendly host ”
Could not do enough for us. Room spacious and clean. After 400km just what we needed.
Lovely overnight stay”
Very warm and welcoming owner Michelle in reception. House looks like it's out of an old movie. Would recommend! Jackson the dog is awesome and friendly.
Great room ”
Everything about this place was great except the location which is a bit too close to the railway However I have invested in ear putty so hope to stay there again on our return trip
Glad to be there”
Only stayed one night but will have no hesitation in booking again and for a longer stay.
